House-shaking Galactic is at the forefront of progressive New Orleans funk. The quintet magnetically epitomizes NOLA’s ever-changing music scene, interpolating R&B and jazz with contemporary rhythms of hip hop, electronica and fusion. Filtering influence from their home town and twisting it with world beats from their travels, these musical omnivores might further flex their creative muscles by weaving the blues and brass born of the Mississippi with slippery, dub-inflections or speedy rap, launching their evolutionary artistic vision into auditory ecstasy. Renowned for collaborating with other musicians, this high-powered instrumental outfit evinces a multi-faceted sonic truth about their swampy cultural roots in every live show. This concert brings the Crescent City’s underground to the fore by featuring Angelika Jelly Joseph with the Naughty Professor. Be prepared to get loose. Galactic is Ben Ellman (saxophone and harmonica), Stanton Moore (drums), Jeff Raines (guitar), Robert Mercurio (bass) and Richard Vogel (keyboards).
